Lakers Sweep Season Series With North Stars

The Owen Sound North Stars (0-7) visited the Peterborough Lakers (4-3) on a rare Tuesday night game at the Peterborough Memorial Centre.

Owen Sound has had their struggles this year, still looking for their first win.  The Lakers to this point still hadn’t won at home, and were looking to change that in this game.

The North Stars, led by Tanner Buck (4g,9a), Jackson Webster (4g,9a) and Jackson Reid (6g,5a) have had trouble scoring consistently.  Peterborough’s firepower consists of Rob Hellyer (6g,15a), Thomas Hoggarth (11g,9a), Holden Cattoni (9g,10a) and Joe Resetarits (7g,6a).

The last time these teams met, the Lakers left Owen Sound with a 15-8 victory.

The goaltending match-up had Kaleb Martin in net for the North Stars facing Doug Buchan in net for the Lakers.

Owen Sound started well, but the consistent waves of offense sent by the Lakers paid dividends.  Led by Turner Evans and Holden Cattoni Peterborough took a 6-3 lead to the dressing room.

A much more dominant period by the Lakers in the second.  Joe Resetarits, Holden Cattoni and Koleton Marquis led the offense, but the defense was stifling as well.  Peterborough led 10-3 at the break.

Tanner Buck put the North Stars on his back scoring three in the third period.  However, Thomas Hoggarth and Holden Cattoni answered with their third goals as well for Peterborough.   The Lakers come away with an impressive 13-7 victory.

To The Game:

The Lakers got on the board first with Holden Cattoni wiring a shot off a Thomas Hoggarth pass at 8:42, but Jackson Webster answered for the North Stars unassisted from in close at 9:47.

Tyler Halls gave Owen Sound the lead with a low to low shot off a Mitch Gustavsen pass 0:11 seconds later but the Lakers stormed back with three goals.

Turner Evans fired a Joe Resetarits pass at 10:47, followed by Thomas Hoggarth from in front off a Mitch Ogilvie feed at 11:39.  Evans then got his second of the period with a sidearm shot off a Joe Resetarits pass at 12:40.

Tyler Halls answered with his second of the game at 14:15, but a goal from Joe Resetarits and a power-play goal from Holden Cattoni had Peterborough up by three.
